2.  Cell-Mediated Hypersensitivity in Rabbits Infected with Trypanosoma brucei and Trypanosoma rhodesiense 
Infection and Immunity  1971;4(6):674-677.
Animals infected with strains of Trypanosoma brucei and T. rhodesiense exhibited cutaneous hypersensitivity to intradermal administration of antigen. This reactivity was of two types, an Arthus-type, antibody-mediated reaction which reached maximum intensity 4 hr after injection and a delayed-type, cell-mediated reaction which reached maximum intensity 24 hr after injection. This delayed-type hypersensitivity appeared in rabbits not earlier than 3 weeks after onset of infection. It did not occur in animals which received dead organisms. There was a cross-reaction in both types of reactivity between antigens prepared from T. brucei and T. rhodesiense. The delayed-type hypersensitivity was transferred to normal rabbits by intravenous inoculation of washed living cells from the spleen of a rabbit which showed delayed hypersensitivity. Dead cells failed to transfer hypersensitivity. The histological picture of the indurated area was typical of a delayed-type reaction.

3.  Multiplication of Pasteurella multocida in the Spleen, Liver and Blood of Turkeys Inoculated Intravenously 
After intravenous inoculation of Pasteurella multocida into turkeys the number of organisms increased over 100 times in the liver and 75 times in the spleen three hours after inoculation, but there was no increase in the blood.
Between three and 15 hours after inoculation there was no change in the number of organisms in the liver and spleen. The number of organisms rose steadily between 15 and 22 hours after inoculation.
After 22 hours there was a very significant increase in numbers of organisms in the liver, spleen and blood. It was found that the increase in number of organisms in the blood occurred rapidly between 22 and 28 hours after inoculation when the number of bacteria in the liver and spleen reached its peak. It appears that the bacteria from the liver and spleen invaded the blood before the death of the turkeys.

4.  Immunization of Mice and Chinchillas Against Pseudomonas aeruginosa 
The possibility of production of an effective vaccine against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in fur-bearing animals was investigated. Twenty-three strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from diseased chinchillas and mink were tested in mice for their immunogenic properties. Nineteen of these strains produced good immunity against homologous strains, and three of these produced also good immunity against heterologous strains. Of the remaining four strains two produced moderate immunity and two no immunity.
It was found that 0.05% or 0.5% formalin added to suspensions of Pseudomonas aeruginosa or ultrasonification of the suspension produced better results than 0.5% phenol, 0.3% alcohol or heat at 100°C for half an hour.
Chinchillas vaccinated with two doses of formolized Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacterins were immune for 36 weeks after the second dose, while all controls died within 48 hours after being challenged.
It was found that the protection afforded by the polyvalent bacterin extended beyond the strains included in the vaccine.
A field survey on 34 ranches which included over 7,700 chinchillas showed very promising and encouraging results.

5.  Trypanosomes in Cattle in Southern Ontario 
Trypanosomes were found in the blood of 155 out of 274 Holstein cows of various ages from southern Ontario. The incidence varied from about 8% in one herd to about 85% in another herd. Two species of trypanosomes were found in cattle in the Guelph area. One was Trypanosoma theileri. The other was a much smaller trypanosome which morphologically resembles T. uniforme of the Salivaria. This is the first report of such a trypanosome in cattle in North America. Epimastigotes from blood agar slants of both trypanosomes, when inoculated into chick embryos, produced blood forms morphologically identical to those found in the blood of the cows. T. theileri survived at least two weeks in blood kept at 4-5° C.
